early. the assumption is both hillary clinton and joe biden wouldn't run in 2016. it's going to be one of the two most likely. but this is a way for joe biden to keep his name in the spotlight. it's never good to be a lame duck, especially a lame duck sitting vice president. by joe biden going to speak in iowa, he's gone to speak in south carolina before and elsewhere, keeps his name in the news and keeps his options open which is very important. >> good friend of senator harken there of course. the texas senator ted cruz, this was his second trip to iowa in a month. he's scheduled to return again in the fall. he's going to be speaking at the iowa republican party's fall fund-raising dinner. is he tipping his hat to real political ambitions or just sort of raising his name recognition and bringing in more dollars? >> it's probably both. as i mentioned for joe biden, getting your na inting your nam spotlight, ted cruz has been doing that and more. he's going to go to new hampshire. he is all over the place. but i will repeat, again, it is very, very early. at this point in the 2008 cycl
. but with hillary clinton and joe biden both in the news this week you see it's never too early for presidential politics for a lot of these folks. >> and richard wolffe, how do you see this issue that's developed? we saw on "meet the press" this weekend talking about the surprise that hillary clinton is so obviously and kind of openly running for president. as you know, richard, on this show panelists are not allowed to even consider the possibility that hillary is not already running. >> bear that in mind. >> does she have to make it so obvious? >> it's an interesting media reaction. what -- i mean, it seems that no one is struggling against the idea that people on the republican side can make it obvious. why is hillary clinton under some kind -- or should she be under any kind of limitation on making it obvious? >> she shouldn't be under any limitation at all. and to be fair, we're talking about world affairs and foreign policy. it's actually very different from laying the groundwork for a national domestic political campaign, where as a clinton the world has moved on somewhat since those day
. started in the clinton years. i want to bring in jared bernstein, former economic adviser to joe biden, senior fellow. avik roy, former adviser on health care to the romney campaign. so, marjorie, i think i told you before the show, i marked this date on my calendar a while back with the 20th anniversary -- >> have you to walk it off. >> i said, there is no one i would rather talk to on the 20th anniversary of this budget than marjorie margolies because i remember watching that scene. i remember the republicans chanting, bye, bye marjorie. >> and bob walker jumping up and down. he was a fine jumper. he was right. what he was saying was absolutely true, bye-bye. >> take us back to what the climate was like back then. we showed bill clinton ran in 1992 talking about how he was going to go into office raise taxes on the wealthy. ross perot made the deficit a national priority. bill clinton comes in. he says, we're going to tackle the deficit, do it by slightly raising taxes on the wealthy and it set off this sort of popular revolt. >> well, 1.2% of the population? they all lived in my dis
president obama's reasoning mate, joe biden steps into the 2016 spotlight in his hometown this afternoon. biden allies tell "the wall street journal" he can win the 2016 nomination even if hillary clinton decides to get in the race. on the republican side, chris christie is grabbing a lot of 2016 headlines and, this morning, that is the top story on politico. so with no incumbent, so much happening. joining us is chris covinas and joe watkins, former aide to president bush 41. good morning, guys. >> good morning, chris. >> the rnc puts out a press release this morning, chris, about the president and his bus tour but here is the headline. biden is laying the groundwork for obama's third term. is that the strategy? if so, is this that they are worried about him as well as hillary clinton. >> i doubt very much that is the strategy. groundwork three years ahead doesn't usually lead to very good groundwork. i mean, just not the way politics work. that being said, i think it's kind of, you know, funny or desperate, i guess choose which one you want that the rnc would focus on that. the reality
. the message from joe biden is don't forget about me. i am still looking at 2016. he is not ruled out. i think certainly, if hillary clinton decides not to run, he very much wants to give it a long look. by going there and seeing all the democratic activists, i think he is trying to remind them that he may do this yet. he's run twice before. he has a lot of relationships in iowa from two campaigns going back '87 and '88. his doing this is no accident. >> chris, as you note in one of your blogs, you note in the fix that hillary clinton's absence created a vacuum in the hawkeye state for joe biden. >> bring up 2016, the only question anyone wants to talk about is what's hillary going to do? hillary clinton is not someone -- joe biden is going there to say i'm here. i may run. hillary clinton can never go to iowa to explore the possibility of running. she has to decide i'm in or out. she can't do what the other candidates can do, which means for the next 18 months or so until she makes up her mind, i have no inside information. she's not going to make up her mind before the midterms. the business
, scott walker, you know, that's -- martin o'malley. joe biden. there's a story in "the wall street journal" today joe biden says he might run regardless. this is a huge process. i compare it to an iceberg. the little part that people see above the water, the average voter seize above the water, there's a giant formation below water that's all of the stuff we're talking about now. so look, you cover it if there's news. i think there is news there. she is acting in political ways on a political landscape. i think we all need to write about that. >> amy, what's the first year you can run for class president? is it high school, freshman year? these guys and women show their hand that day, 13 years old. hillary clinton was the star of her graduating class at wellesley. no doubt about it from the beginning before she met this guy named bill from arkansas she had her eye on the prize. this is something that comes with the territory. usually the guys but here we have a woman. by the way, i think the woman's movement behind hillary is bigger than her. i think the reason she will run and may
the president there with more to come this hour as the president makes remarks with vice president joe biden in biden's hometown of scranton, pennsylvania. but right now, we want to go to washington and naacp and chairman emeritus julian bond. thank you so much for being here. we want to get into a little bit of the politics. i would be remiss if we didn't talk about the march on washington, the 50th anniversary coming up this weekend on into wednesday. as a veteran of that movement, can you give us a big picture where we are 50 years on? >> well, we're on -- i would say about halfway to dr. king's dream if that far. but what he dreamed about hasn't been realized yet. the poll in the "new york times" today shows enormous gasp what white and black people feel about racial progress. it strikes us as a country struggling hard to do the right thing but not succeeding so far. >> what do you guess is behind that disparity between the way white americans and many black americans feel about the progress in race relations given the fact that we do have our first african-american president elected wit

. do you think vice president joe biden will enter this race? >> well, his visit to the steak fry doesn't seem to be to be suggesting very much. he spent more time in iowa than anyone at the last cycle. it really didn't do him any good. but he's a sitting vice president. and this is as close as he's going to get to a chance to run. >> finally ryan to you, briefly, if you can. do you think the vice president jumps in? >> i think we give too much credit to the people themselves to answer that question. we shouldn't -- i don't think we should wait for them to say whether or not they're running. we can look at their behavior and decide whether or not they're running. and based on their behavior, hillary clinton and joe biden are both running for president. to my mind, they are running for president until they say they're not. as long as they're traveling to iowa and new hampshire and talking to donors and establishing campaigns and raising money, they're running for president no matter what they say. >> ryan grimm and gra gans franke-ruta, thank you so much. coming up, the deep financial im

another country without congressional consent. here is joe biden. >> i'd like to be clear. the president does not have the authority to launch military action in iran without first seeking congressional a authorization. >> we don't believe any authority the president has would give him the ability to go in without an act of congress. >> the president has no constitutional authority to take this nation to war against a country of 70 million people unless we're attacked or unless there is proof that we are about to be attacked. and if he does, if he does, i would move to impeach him. >> congressman, just to clarify. joe biden from 2007 and nancy pelosi and harry reid all talking about how they felt then about president bush. what do you think is the biggest obstacle for the president? it seems as if republicans in congress, they are kind of caught between a rock and a hard place on giving the go ahead for this. but then allowing the president to almost seem as the dove turned neocon. >> the republicans for past several months have been criticizing the president for doing nothing and now th

's absence from the early primary states. we know joe biden is making a states out, but she is teasing her next stop, so what is the strategy here? >> well, look, you know, peter, as i was listening to her say those words, all that kept running through my mind is this would be exactly what you would do if you were hillary clinton and you want to run for president. which i do think it is hard for her as an unannounced candidate to go to one of these early states respect because it would be an absolute zoo. anytime she gets near one of those states, we write about it. if she goes to one of the -- she doesn't need more headlines. i think what she's doing is smart. she's giving meaty policy addresses, voters suppression, voter i.d., critical important issue to the democratic base. particularly among african-americans and hispanics. she's doing what you do if you're hillary clinton and you want to run for president. >> i want to ask you, ruth, if we can, a change of topic. the republicans, it looks like a peace treaty, between rand paul and chris christie. here was rand paul's comments this mor
, current federal law already contains a safety valve proposed i might add, but then senator joe biden. that safety valve allows the judge without any motion from the prosecution to go below a mandatory minimum if the defendant comes clean about all that he is doing, if this crime has not involved violence, if he has a relatively low criminal history. so we have that. and the third current method for getting a below a mandatory minimum sentence is a motion made by the prosecutor in exchange for the defendant's giving information about how his suppliers are, who his customers are, who else is working with him in the drug gang. >> professor, thank you. laura murphy, take my final 20 seconds. you get the final word go. ahead. >> well, 94% of the people in prison are there because of plea bargains. and most of the people who go to prison do so because they have inadequate counsel. so the attorney general addressed that too. but the attorney general made a great change in government policy. the war on drugs is a failure. it leads to huge racial disparities. it leads to expensive. >> thank y

think the president is trying very hard to thread a complicated needle. in april of 2010, joe biden and president obama hosted a major nuclear materials and wmd materials conference here in washington, d.c., and viewed essentially trying to create -- restoring a global commons that prevented the proliferation and use of wmds and chemical weapons as a defining point of their administration. so not to act from their point of view is not really an opposioption. i think when from their point of view they're trying to create a stable option, how do you go from a strike on syria to a geneva peace process? you have both sides squaring off. and i think it may sound odd and it would be nice to review in a month on what happens, but if things went well and you were able to punish the regime enough so that people could tell it was compelling but not part of a regime strategy which the administration has been bending over backwards saying we're not trying to knock out assad, that is a signal to the russians saying we are open to some change in the future. and that allows us to go into a geneva

that vice president joe biden, a 30-year senator, was heavily involved in it. he was so far out on the limb it was pathetic. he didn't have backing from the u.s. coming, nato, arab league, denounced by egypt, denounced by jordan. this was a loser. a limited military strike wasn't going to change the situation on the ground. >> general, we have also seen reports that some within the military, actually, wrls concerned about the way the president was proceeding. i would assume this alays some of their concerns as well. >> nobody with eight brain cell who had military experience thought this was a good idea. there was a letter that said don't get involved in a ground civil war. if you do get involved. if you've written your political objective and you want to deter assad from threatening his own people. 100,000 dead. ruined half the country. then use meaningful military american measures. it could destroy the syrian armed forces in 60 days. but not with 200 tomahawks. >> when you hear the president talk about a limited strike. that sounds shorter than 60 days. how realistic do you think it is?
